2013 State of the Union: Mike Malloy's live commentary (4 videos+more)
Transcript of Obama's 2013 SOTU. The following videos also incorporate NBC News' video of the SOTU, as Mike was watching MSNBC and delivering live commentary even taking shots at John Boehner's behavior and face.
Full, growing playlist of all the show segments from this month I've uploaded to my channel
Part 1 starts at: "...the responsibility of improving this union remains the task of us all.
Our work must begin by making some basic decisions about our budget -- decisions that will have a huge impact on the strength of our recovery."
"Now is our best chance for bipartisan, comprehensive tax reform that encourages job creation and helps bring down the deficit. "
Jump to 4:35 for an extended commentary.
Part 2 starts at: "But for the sake of our children and our future, we must do more to combat climate change." Ends at: "Now at schools like P-Tech in Brooklyn, a collaboration between New York Public Schools and City University of New York and IBM, students will graduate with a high school diploma and an associate's degree in computers or engineering. We need to give every American student opportunities like this." Mike turns down the speech at the 3:00 and 3:30 to question Obama's energy policy ESPECIALLY his commitment to expand oil drilling and silence on Keystone XL and has an extended commentary at 9:20.
Part 3 starts at: " We know our economy is stronger when we reward an honest day’s work with honest wages. But today, a full-time worker making the minimum wage earns $14,500 a year. " Ends at: " Beyond 2014, America’s commitment to a unified and sovereign Afghanistan will endure, but the nature of our commitment will change. " Jump to 2:50 and look at Boehner.
Part 4 starts at: "When any American, no matter where they live or what their party, are denied that right because they can't afford to wait for five or six or seven hours just to cast their ballot, we are betraying our ideals. "
"We may do different jobs and wear different uniforms, and hold different views than the person beside us. But as Americans, we all share the same proud title -- we are citizens. "
Mike's first post-SOTU thoughts about civil liberties, guns, and the economy, referencing this ACLU PR about the re-introduced CISPA:
Oh, Mike also tried to watch Sen. Marco Rubio's response. He got disgusted:
